In the Name of Research

It all started this morning when I spotted these in the candy aisle at Target. What was I doing in the candy aisle at Target, you ask? I have to have a reason? I was researching the prices of various quantities of Hershey's Kisses for the Hershey Kiss Treat making party I'm hosting Friday, Feb. 8, from 6:30-10pm. That I happened to notice a full bag of these Hershey's Extra Creamy Nuggets with Toffee and Almonds couldn't be helped. (I have Lydia in Austin to thank for yet another addiction.) Anyway, I began to wonder if these little morsels would fit inside the cutie patutie little treat container, so I had to buy some. In the name of research...

I am very pleased to announce that "yes" Hershey's Nuggets also fit inside this little treat favor! I also wanted to make another sample of these WITHOUT using the "i love you" stamp, which some were concerned was the only sentiment option I'd have available. They didn't want their children conveying "those three words" to their classmates, and I wouldn't either, if I was their mother! So, here's the second version. Of course the first can be made without said saying and still be adorable.

AND, in case you weren't aware, you can order a special stamp set that celebrates Valentine's Day (my favorite holiday) to have for your very own, and it includes a special "Happy Valentine's Day" stamp, sized to fit the small tag punch used on the treat sample in my earlier post.

If you do any research and find some other delectable treat that will fit in this little holder, feel free to share...the chocolates. I prefer dark chocolate, even though this post would leave you thinking I like milk. Just this one kind...

One last thing...my boss chose the present card and the beautiful thing card for his wife, and a coworker bought the love card for her husband. They were all winners, I guess! Thanks for giving your opinion! I love hearing from you.
